Smoothie Tips

  • ADD ICE LAST: Adding ice first may cause you to overblend, leaving you with a watery drink.
  • IF YOU USE FROZEN FRUIT: You may not need as much ice. Frozen fruit is as nutrient-packed as fresh—just choose those with no added sugars.
  • NOT A FAN OF DAIRY? Most milk alternatives (soy, rice) have roughly the same calories as 1% milk—about 100 per cup.
